    That's 'cause we thought the names would be good this time around.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Now watch as at one day, everyone thinks the names are suckish and the next day, they're all saying "Oh my gosh, these are the best names ever!". This always happens, and it was most evident with the revelation with Oshawott's design.

    (I also came up with Floralord for Jalorda; meaning should be obvious enough)

    Tepig is all sorts of meh, I'll have to agree with those who liked the German name, Floink, better.

    As for Oshawott...one thing I'll say is that it's a departure from the two-syllable scheme of the last two generations (and the other two starter names of this one). It's probably my favorite of the three. Probably.

    Isshu -> Unova is one heck of a curve-ball, seeing how the previous regions' English names are just Anglicized versions of their Japanese names. Looks like they decided to just keep the meaning of the name instead of the name itself.

    Seeing how they didn't keep the Yin/Yang bit from Reshiram and Zekrom's classifications, I'm dreading what Hihidaruma's English name might without Daruma/Dharma in it. I'd love it to be Dharboon, but it'll probably be something like Burboon or Babblaze (Babboon + Blaze).

    Finally, about the logos...
    (sorry, can't resist)



    True, they've made a step in the right direction with HGSS and now Black/White, albeit a small one, by coloring each version name accordingly instead of just typing it in "black-rimmed white text" and calling it a day. Although, however cool and mature the version text is, it's still contrasted by the toddlerish tarp blue/mustard yellow eyesore above it.

    Perhaps with the obligatory third version (Clear, Gray, whatever) or the inevitable Ruby/Sapphire remake, they'll finally do something the Pokémon logo itself? I mean, if 4Kids could do it with the Celebi and Latias/Latios movies...
    Floink is awesome.

    And yeah, I'm a little sad about the logos not being as awesome as the Japanese ones :(

    I always had a feeling in the back of my mind they were going to rename Isshu. I'm glad they did since Unova seems more fitting for a region based of New York.

    I was really hoping they would update the franchise logo this generation like they do with the games every other gen in Japan. The logo looks too childish now for these games. I would have loved to see a direct translation of the Japanese logo. Like this person did on deviantart. http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=pokemon+as+it+meant+to+be+logo#/d2qzgbk

    True. In fact, I also thought they were going to rename it because Isshu sounds too similar to "issue". Then people would start punning it and making fun of it.

    It's only been hours, and already the dissatisfaction can already be felt. Maybe complaining and being unhappy about something is considered cool and edgy that it seems right to do so, and expressing satisfaction is seen as uncool, pertaining to some of the complainers?

    Anyway, about the names...it's time we got them. Do you know why I am happy to get them? For one, it feels homely to use the English names in the English language, because it sounds about right. Another is that newer fans and older fans can use the same language. In previous generations, I adapted to the English names, and thus is more used to them, and it's more courteous to me if the other party used the English names too, and I felt that when talking to newer (or returning) fans, the English names is much easily understandable. Finally, everyone can at least use a common name with the exact spelling! One of my problems with Japanese romanisations is that some spellings are difficult to be standardised. For example, Shanderaa. Some used Shanderaa, some Shandera, and some Chandelar. See? It's too varied. Of course, it's time to get accustomed to the new names now.

    Snivy sounds somewhat appropriate, due to the literal meaning it has with the Pokemon, and I think it's quite edgy too. Tepig was also a surprise, due to the much straighter pun within the name, even though the name's not my first thought when it comes to the Pokemon. Oshawott is actually more surprising than the previous, because the name sounds somewhat complicated. The roundness of Oshawott make it seems that the name is fit for the Pokemon, and besides, people who wanted "Wotter" would be happy with part of the name, so it's all good. If you ask me, the term "Smugleaf" is fan-preferred and may not be generally preferred. I supposed fans are spoilt by their own preferences.

    Perhaps the biggest surprise in English-ification is Unova. I am not sure about Isshu-lovers, but...is Isshu even supposed to be part of Japan in any way? Unova is also clever naming, due to its meaning behind it, and with that name, I have reason to believe that the region I am travelling in Pokemon Black and White is not related to the previous Generations, so it actually helps the experience of travelling in a whole new region, which was intended by the developers.

    Thanks for reading.

    I know that, but most of the American audience hasn't seen the Japanese name of the region yet.

    No, it's based off a part of New York, USA.

    I like Oshawott the best, so I'm going to be using him. I've actually grown to like Isshu, so Unova seems a bit off to me. Oh well, it'll grow on it.

    I know that. But I remember when Oshawott was revealed in May and everyone hated its design, but the next day, everyone loved it.

    Do you think they'll change the names of Iris and Dent? I could picture them keeping Iris but what about Dent?
    I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant, it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.
